Everything you do is a technical endeavor. Think about it. Determine the formula for success and act accordingly. If you are successful, you receive a reward. Big deal. So we are constantly trying to find happiness through our endeavors, but the methods hardly differ. Whether your stirring soup, casting a fishing rod, riding a bike, or pressing a button on a keyboard, you're still basically a robot, a complicated human robot. Eventually, your parts will wear out or be destroyed. What people need to be happy then is a good challenge, a scenario where one cannot determine whether or not they possess the capacity to be successful. If that person is successful, they will satisfactorily receive their possession. The problem is that with modern society, survival is basically a joke and we occupy ourselves with largely frivolous pursuits. Look how many people's lives are dedicated entirely to entertainment. I'm not suggesting that running naked through the woods being chased by a tiger is better than what we have now, but it certainly would be more motivating.
